Adding Multiple Strokes in Photoshop


Final Image

Although it seems that is not possible to have multiple strokes effect in Photoshop, we can still achieve or simulate it. One way is to use tip with Smart Objects recently published on In this post I will present you different approach to achieve same result of multiple strokes around editable shape, type or pixel based layer. My tip is to use gradient for stroke instead of solid color. Trick is to set Fill Type to Gradient, Style to Shape Burst and gradient color stops at the same or near same locations. The beaty of adding multiple strokes around Shape and Type layers using gradient is that you will have only one fully editable layer. Lets go to my tip.
